Aranya Namwong at the National Film Archive

Tomorrow (July 5), veteran leading lady Aranya Namwong will be the latest star to make her impressions in the wet concrete outside the Sri Sala cinema at the National Film Archive in Nakhon Pathom Province.

Festivities start at 2pm. After she sets her hands and footprints in the pavement, Aranya will give a talk and rare clips of her films will be shown. At 4pm with there will be a screening of Wiwa Pa Fan a 1971 film in which she starred with Sombat Metanee, her frequent leading man.

The runner-up in the 1964 Miss Thailand pagaent, Aranya starred in a staggering number of films in 1970s. I think the only one I've seen from her heyday was 1971's Tone. More recently, she starred in The Bodyguard and was featured in Suriyothai.
